The major indexes slipped lower as investors struggle to digest a slew of largely underwhelming earnings reports — and more in Tuesday’s stock market recap.

Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) posted mixed results for the fourth quarter. Earnings and revenue met consensus estimates but forward earnings missed the Refinitiv consensus estimate, causing shares to fall 1.5% in premarket trading.

Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) also reported mixed results, beating earnings estimates but missing on revenue. The company’s full-year earnings outlook was higher than expected, and shares rose almost 1% premarket.

And Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) proved to be a bright spot amid recent reports, beating earnings and revenue estimates, causing the stock to gain 1.5%.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss why I’m skeptical that the current tech rally will continue… an update on the bond market and Federal Reserve data… which earnings I’m watching… what market internals are saying about the Energy sector… which sector is showing the most vulnerability, and which is oversold right now… why the Dow gained six times less than the Nasdaq this year… plus which stocks I’m going long on right now, and which ones I’m fading!

P.S. 2023 Is About to Get Bumpy

Joy of the Trade’s Jeff Zananiri has some bold claims to his name…

He helped his old hedge fund go 10 straight years without a single losing quarter…

Once bagged over $1 million in just 30 minutes for his old fund…

And back in May 2022 in the peak of the housing crisis, Jeff let his readers know that his research was pointing to a 20%-30% drop in home prices.

Sure enough, sales followed his call and dropped to the lowest levels since 2015.

It’s safe to say he’s seen a lot of market mayhem throughout his career. And Jeff just uncovered a major “Financial Hurricane” set to hit in 2023…

If you’re not prepared for the storm ahead, you could get whisked away.

But Jeff has a game plan — a 90-day market mission to get traders out of the dust…

And he’s revealing it LIVE at 10 a.m. ET today, Jan. 24!
